to a big blocking high. you can see rain in the deep south. that is our coastal low, and, it is spinning just over south carolina the track this storm takes is very important, also very important how strong this system gets because if the high stays in place that could suppress this low from moving too far north but few computer models want to keep the storm north and bring that threat for rain in our area on sunday evening. our live neighborhood network shows temperatures have dropped from daytime highs in the 80's back to the mid to 70's right now. new castle at 79. millville at 75. doylestown also at 79. but lets talk more about the weekend rain chance. first thing to note here is high pressure to the north, storm to the south. we have two different pressure sips tells getting close together that creates a pressure gradient and that lead to gusty wind. wind are coming from the north east all weekend, breezy conditions saturday but does stay dry. sunday is the date that this rain will lift a little bit closer to our area. now it remains to be seen, that rain could stay to the south of us but you have to plan for it especially with
